Finn Harps manager Ollie Horgan has called on the Donegal public to come out in numbers and support his side ahead of the SSE Airtricity League Division One clash with Galway FC this Saturday.
Harps have made a promising start to the 2014 campaign, and sit top of the table following two wins and one draw from their opening three games. Horgan, thus far, has urged caution with the season in its infancy.
Last Friday, Harps produced a fine showing as they defeated Cobh Ramblers 5-0 at Finn Park.
“It was good to see those in attendance stay behind to show the lads their appreciation after Fridays win against Cobh,” Horgan said.
“It would be great to see a big crowd come out on Saturday as a good atmosphere can definitely play its part in encouraging any team, and we are no different. Galway have a lot of quality and play good football so it’s a challenge we will be relishing.”
Harps face a taxing month of April - where they have only on home fixture against Wexford Youths - as well as taxing trips to Shelbourne, Longford Town and Waterford United.
“It’s a very competitive league this year and there will be twists and turns for every side,” Hordan added. “As I said before we will never get carried away. We are looking for those players who have character, those lads that react the right way when results go against us or when things aren’t going well. It’s important that our supporters see that they have are following an honest team that is 100 per cent committed. We have a lot of hard work to do but we are going in the right direction.”
